    The problem with 'blackface' lies not so much in the colour of the face makeup but in doing it so as to complete the look when one is parodying black people. If John Smith was behaving in a way in the picture that was purposefully stereotyping a black person in a derogatory manner then yes, offense makes sense. However there's no sign of him doing so.

    If you are genuinely offended by his picture then lodge a complaint rather than purposefully trying to assassinate John Smith's character by accusing him of doing something he isn't necessarily doing (certainly not intentionally anyway).

    I am sleeping due to being inebriated. How anyone but me is offended by my friend doing this is beyond me!!! Sad.

    Would my face being coloured in a different shade not cause offence then?

    Kwik what is your problem? You come here to complain about us and then start looking for a fight with random accusations of racism. Is it racist to have the colour black in your on screen picture? I don't understand why you have so much anger in you.

    Jordan you need to grow up too. The reason you got a warning was because you created a WUM article that wasn't even funny, it just sounded bitter as your players are just as likely to show an imaginary yellow card as ours are. Stop being so hypocritical and trying to argue all the time

    Ok here's the problem.
    A) If i've made an invalid point then say so, name calling is childish.
    B) An Arsenal Mod has given a warning to a united fan for using the word "piss". Here on this thread Arsenal fan's have used far worse language. Surely all rule's the same for everyone.
    C) The Black Minstrel's are very taboo in today's society. To dress up or "colour yourself in" to impersonate one is no different to wearing a KKK hood imo. Would you not be offended, or expect black people to be offended if I posted a pic of me in a KKK hood?.
    D) The irony of me saying Arsenal fan's should be banned has imo just helped PROVE the point not DISPROVED it as if the mod kept to his own rules there's one or two that should be banned on this thread alone.

    What should i expect though? Its the Arsenal board, an Arsenal mod isn't going to use normal logic to rule it.
    In fact if you warn one member for his language but not another because he is "like you" is THAT not racism?.

    A) You posted a childish WUM article with no actual point.
    B) I have also been warned regarding language, so you have no point.
    C) Minstrels are racist. A photo of a guy who's mate coloured his face in with pen is not <ok>
    D) Look up the meaning of irony fella. This is a football forum where swearing is allowed, within boundaries. Swearing doesn't get an account banned you plank <doh>

    ]A) You posted a childish WUM article with no actual point. Actually the point has been proven on this thread by idiot's like yourself. You probably don't have the intelligence to see this though

    B) I have also been warned regarding language, so you have no point. You were ONLY warned AFTER a united fan who had been warned entered this discussion, there's a 4 and a half hour gap between your first post and you saying you had been warned.

    C) Minstrels are racist. A photo of a guy who's mate coloured his face in with pen is not <ok> Right, so colouring a face in black isn't done to replicate minstrel's? Not that bright are you?

    D) Look up the meaning of irony fella. This is a football forum where swearing is allowed, within boundaries. Swearing doesn't get an account banned you plank <doh>[/QUOTE] I don't give a **** about swearing, but obviously this mod does. Why a mod would care on a forum with the option of a swear filter on it is beyond me. But it's double standard's.

    No, you dick! In all honesty, I don't think he knows who the minstrels were! It is a prank...

    What do you think of my new avatar anyway? Is it a bit harsh on our Italian counterparts?

    Racist to anyone with gluten intolerance?

    Why are you still posting this rubbish.You have the nerve to complain about Arsenal fans posting on the Man Utd boards but you and your cohort Jordan have spent the best part of today parked here.

    I can't even see your new avatar.
    Well done for changing it, if only you could have done it out of common sense.

    Kwik, i think you are looking for racism rather than finding it. Nobody apart from you seems to think that John has done anything wrong and we would say if it was something as serious as that. I don't really see how you can complain about arsenal fans wumming when you have spent the best part of a day carrying on a pointless argument with us.
